Many of the reviewers state that this appears to be made of resin/plastic, yet the product details state that it is mahogany. Is the item truly made of mahogany or is it simply mahogany color?

I purchased this mirror to fill wall space in my home office but it does so much more! The detail is lovely and it was so easy to hang. This mirror is a beautiful piece for any room. I am very pleased with my purchase.Read More
This mirror is nice, however it is hard to see in picture that there is chinese writing all over the frame. I almost sent it back because I wasn't sure if I liked it. I kept it and it looks great in my entry way but just know that there is writing all over the frame.Read More
This mirror does the job, looks great in my hallway, but the frame is a hard plastic. I'm not sure what I expected.Read More
I don't understand how it was made. I am assuming it was made from a mold using some sort of resin. Therefore, the problems could have been addressed. I am unhappy with the appearance of where the edging joins on the inner and outer frame. I am keeping the piece, and trying to come to terms with the non-perfect aspects. I remember this issue from a previous review.Read More
Love the calligraphy. There is a braid which is in the inner rim and for some reason where it ends the edges were not as well fused as it should but hopefully the calligraphy will deter the eye on closer look,Read More
It's a nice looking piece with no assembly required, but disappointed with the workmanship & appearance. The hooks put in the back of the mirror to hang with is put in at a spot where the Chinese characters in the front side of the mirror end up being crooked, so the writing does not go up and down--instead its at an angle. Not a huge deal, but not what I would have liked or expected.Read More
Arrived with the mirror off of the frame with the glue all dried up on the side the back holders were also strewn in the box.....Very pretty mirror though. I applied some mirror glue attached the screws and the holders back on and that solved the problem. Super fast delivery A++ Does not appear like mahogany to me, the work is a bit shabby when you look closely at the detailing. With all that being said the mirror still looks good and is serving its purpose.Read More

Here, at your fingertips, are the gift-giving clues you need, along with links to find these items.

A few contemporary interpretations of the ideas are offered below. For even more gift ideas, be sure to read our guides to modern wedding anniversary gifts and anniversary gemstones.
How to Decorate With Flowers
Whether you have a light-filled courtyard and gazebo or a dark, forgotten corner in a room, flowers and plants provide a dash of color and life in a space.

Modern Wedding Anniversary Gifts
A wedding anniversary, whether the first or the twenty-fifth, is a milestone worth celebrating. Giving a thoughtful gift to your partner is a wonderful way to show affection and commemorate the time you've spent together. Finding the perfect gift isn't always easy, especially if you've been giving each other gifts for decades. Where do you look for new ideas? This list is the best place to start. Each gift idea has a link to the department where you can shop for the items. In England, during the Victorian era, celebrating anniversaries with gifts and parties became very fashionable, and it didn't take long for the trend to reach the United States. The traditional list of anniversary gift ideas came from this time. Then, in 1937, a group of jewelers decided to update the list to include more modern items (and more items that they sold in their stores -- diamonds show up on the list three times). That's where this list of modern wedding anniversary gifts came from. Many items from the original list appear here, and we've offered even more contemporary interpretations of the ideas. If you want to give a creative gift, you can use this list as inspiration.
